I think this is the best SSH server app available for Android. I tried numerous others and they were all buggy and/or lacking features I needed. This is the only one I found that has rsync, which I use to transfer pictures and other data from my phone to my computer. I could not even find a stand alone rsync server app. They all seem to be clients, which does me no good when I want to initiate file transfers from my desktop. I run FreeBSD and wrote a shell script, that rsyncs the directories I want to backup on my phone, and put an icon on my desktop to launch it in an xterm. So all I have to do is click sshelper on the phone to turn it on then click the icon on my desktop and, since it's using rsync, it backs up only new pictures and data. I also use the login shell a lot for finding, editing, and moving files around. It works beautifully. Thank you for a great app.
Works great but on my (old) phone the screen turning off means WiFi turns off, no matter the settings
Great, but no root login This app works great, thanks to the developer. I would rate it a full 5 stars if it allowed me to login as a root user. For many cases you can just use "ssh .. su -c .." to execute a command as root. However, if you want to copy a file that can only be accessed by root via scp or sftp, there is no option. As a workaround, you can move the file to a user accessible folder, but that is less ideal for frequent use. Please implement this feature! Thanks for your hard work.
Worked for me. Works great on Lollipop LG G2. The upgrade to Lollipop broke the SSH server I previously used.
Works great. It's also not just openssh (the full one including sftp, not dropbear), it includes things like busybox, rsync and a zeroconf daemon. There's probably very few things left you'd need for having usable android terminal access.
Perfect Exactly what I was looking for, and fast data transfer too!
